uAlberta, neighbourhood coalition sign MOU on south campus development consultation

May 23, 2012

The University of Alberta and the South Campus Neighbourhood Coalition (SCNC) have agreed to a new consultation process on the development of uAlberta's south campus. A new committee composed of representatives from the 8 neighbourhoods most affected by the south campus developments will meet with uAlberta, at least 4 times a year and more often if necessary. Relations between the south campus neighbourhoods and the university have been strained in recent years, and last December SCNC went to court arguing that uAlberta did not follow its own consultation procedures. SCNC agreed to drop its lawsuit and signed an MOU with uAlberta outlining how consultation will work. uAlberta/SCNC News Release | Edmonton Journal
